Kate Middleton proved it is always the right time to look stylish when she stepped out in a Jenny Packham crepe de chine polka-dot number to debut her newborn baby son.

Jenny Packham, one of the designers whom the Duchess of Cambridge favours, saw her website crash under the weight of traffic after it was confirmed that she'd designed the blue dress, and within minutes of the couple's appearance, the designer's name began trending on Twitter.

Despite the fact that the blue and white dress was a bespoke private commission made specifically for Kate, the fashion house is undoubtedly thrilled at such phenomenal worldwide attention.

And suddenly, polka-dots are back on our radar and in hot demand - just like they were when Princess Diana showed off baby William on the same steps 31 years ago.

Take inspiration from Kate, and Diana, and inject some spots into your wardrobe.
